Members of Butetown's 'International Warden's Post' at work. Left to right, they are: Edward Bovell from Barbados; Reverend Edward Avery (Chief Warden, holding a stirrup pump) of the Methodist Colonial Mission (he had previously been a missionary in Sierra Leone); and Miope Nagi from Aden. According to the original caption, this Air Raid Warden's Post had been visited by the King and has members of more than twenty different nationalities: "The Post has a reputation, unexcelled by any, for promptness, courage and devotion to duty gained in a district that has suffered heavily in Cardiff's worst blitzes".
